This vegan Mac and Cheese recipe is made with a cheesy hemp sauce and tastes remarkably authentic. Naturally dairy-free, this pasta is also gluten-free when you serve this sauce over gluten-free noodles or cooked vegetables.

  • 1 1/2 cups hulled hempseed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch of cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard 
  • 16 ounces Elbow or shell pasta of choice
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • paprika , for garnish
  1. Prepare the pasta according to package directions.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, combine the hempseed, lemon juice, water, salt, nutritional yeast, chili powder, garlic, turmeric, cayenne and mustard in a high speed blender and blend until silky smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add 2-4 more tablespoons of water and blend again.

  3. Once the pasta is tender, drain and rinse it, then return the pasta to the pot and stir in the cheese sauce. Season to taste and serve warm!
